Spotlight: Rosen Coaching

Rosen Coaching at has tons of free information to help you be a better Chiropractor, check out the website today. Dr. Angie Meyer was our last interview of The Last Chiropractor interview on, one of the coaches at Rosen Coaching. Below is information from their website on the benefits of a coach.

Benefits Of Working With A Coach

What is needed?
Coaching is proven to work when two factors are present:
The client is willing to learn, grow and take action
There is a gap between where he/she is now and where he/she wants to be
That's all that is necessary for a successful coaching relationship where you can develop the right strategy, implement a plan of action, and achieve your goals. Anything is possible within our coaching relationship. With a coach you can:
Take More, Better, and Smarter Actions
Our first task together is to find out exactly what you really want for yourself. Once you create objectives that are clearly in line with your professional vision, you are much more likely to naturally and consistently take actions to reach them.
Have A Balanced Life, Which Works Well
Professional success is maximized when you enjoy a sense of personal fulfillment and life balance. We will discuss how to be selfish yet responsible, and how to carve out enough time so your life outside of work is exactly the way you want it to be.
Make Better Decisions
We will help you become focused as you share ideas with us. We will understand you and be subjective enough to want a lot for you, yet objective enough not to be biased or self-serving. You'll also find that just talking about your options with someone who really listens is often enough to clarify things.
Reach For More-Much More
When you have a partner you trust, you will reach for much more because you can afford to. Are you ready to think big and really live your life fully? I am a partner who will enable you to take your life wherever you want it to go.
Make and Keep More Money
Most people are worth a lot more than they are making. Are you happy with your financial situation? If not, we can look at your beliefs about money and address whatever is keeping you from experiencing financial abundance.
Have More Sustainable Energy
Together we'll identify the things that drain your energy, and create a long-term strategy to eliminate them. In addition, we'll focus on the things that give you energy, and explore how to maximize their impact. When you're happy, productive, and free from tolerations and problems, life is a lot more fun!

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect on all of the things in our lives that we are thankful for, to spend time with friends and family, recharge our batteries and get ready to end the year on a strong note.

As a Chiropractor I am thankful to be able to practice Chiropractic as it was designed to be practiced. To locate and correct a subluxation in anyone that presents to me whether they are old or young, have symptoms or not, whether they have insurance or not.

Chiropractic is so simple and pure in it's philosophy, science, and art. It is refreshing to think that when someone presents to you that is subluxated, and you remove the nerve interference, just how much that you can benefit that person and all of the people in their life.

Remember to give thanks for all of the Chiropractors that paved the way for us to practice today. I am thankful for all of the people that give great testimonials towards Chiropractic and Chiropractors. I will do my best to leave the state of Chiropractic in a better state than when I first became a DC on August 7, 1993. - MWH

What Is The Most Important Part Of The Patient Visit?

I feel like a mosquito in a nudist colony, there is so much to cover, I don't know where to start.

Question: What is the most important part of the patient visit?

Answer: The post check or post analysis. It is as simple as that.

It doesn't matter what technique you are using, it matters what your pre and post analysis is to make sure that you removed any or all of the subluxations present on that particular visit. If you want to be 100% congruent and of the highest integrity you must be willing to do post checks after your adjustments or else you can't honestly say that you did your best at removing subluxation on that visit.
Some chiropractors think the most important thing on each visit is patient education/communication. I agree that patient education/communication is very important, however, if you do a great consult, exam, report of findings, and orientation, the patient will be on the right track with chiropractic and you can continue to do thirty second tips of the day and questions to further their chiropractic understanding and education of chiropractic.
If you don't correct the interference between the brain and the body and can't back that up with post checks, then this will lead to uncertainty, contradiction, and doubt. I wouldn't want to go to a doctor that was uncertain, contradictory and full of doubt.

Chiropractic Defined by Reggie

The wonders of Chiropractic are so simple that they're almost not worth discussing. You could discuss the whole thing in one sentence. The correction of subluxation allows the body to work at full potential, in the same way that the subluxation, by its very presence, inhibits the function of the body. The big idea in Chiropractic is that if you have a subluxation you'd be better off without it. It is as simple as that.

Performance is always directed and controlled by body chemistry. If your chemistry is normal under the body's own innate control, then the functions of the body are as perfect as they are ever going to get. Body chemistry is controlled by the billions of cells that make the chemicals. The cells that make the chemicals are controlled by the nerve system and the nerves are protected by bone. A subluxation develops. That causes one of two problems humanity has. There are only two diseases: too much or too little. You either have too much of this chemical or too little of that one. If the chemicals are perfect and under the brain's control, then the body functions at its own maximum potential. Not necessarily perfection, but the best it's capable of doing.

Chiropractic's role should be to bring about the correction of subluxation. Actually, the chiropractor doesn't adjust but introduces a force intelligently contrived in the hope that the body will then be able to adapt that force into and adjustment. The body alone knows where the bone belongs.
